Taking buses is not recommended
for going around the island of Langkawi as there are only few bus routes and
it takes time to wait for a bus. There is a bus station in front of the City
Bayview Hotel in Kuah.
Buses ply the route from the jetty to the center of town and passengers are
charged for each way. The only other destination of the public buses is Pantai
|The easiest way
to get around the island is on a motorbike, which can be hired for
approximately RM 25 to RM 40 a day. The roads are excellent and outside Kuah,
it's pleasant and easy riding. Hondas
available for you to rent. It can take you as far as 70 kilometers around the
island and there is nothing to worry about the road condition. The road in
Langkawi is well-maintained and less traffic especially outside Kuah town.
Traveling by motorbike is a smooth, fresh and fun. Hiring a motorbike is
also not difficult as there are heaps of places that rent them out and most of
them are not strictly about seeing your license before handing the bike over
to you. Hiring a motorbike will cost you
RM 30 - RM 40.
